It Was Perfect...
We just hosted our daughter's wedding and reception here. It was perfect--plenty of room to spread out and keep everyone comfortable, countless backgrounds for amazing photography, and a viable Plan B in case of weather issues, although we got lucky with that. There is something truly heartwarming about this place that really can't be put into words. If you are searching for That Special Something, you will find it at Long Branch.Sent on 10/02/2019

Beautiful secluded venue
Long Branch was the perfect venue for our spring wedding! The beautiful home is wonderful for rainy cocktail hours like we had, and the gardens and views outside are amazing too! We had a tent set up on the side of the house and it worked out just perfectly, our guests loved the venue and we all had a fabulous time. Long Branch was great to work with throughout and we could not be happier with how our day turned out.Sent on 07/13/2019

Getting married at Long Branch was one of the best decisions that my husband and I made. It was the very first venue we looked at and once we saw it, we knew it was the one! The property is absolutely gorgeous and has great views of the mountains which we absolutely love. For us, one of the selling features is that the property is on 400 acres so you will have your privacy. The inside of the mansion is breathtaking as well and full of so much history! We also had the pleasure of working with Gretchen (our wedding planner) from Dragonfly Events and Design when we signed on with Long Branch. She had a ton of wonderful ideas and listened to everything that we had in mind. Not that it needs much, but after everything was said and done, on the day of our wedding Gretchen transformed Long Branch into a sight we will never forget! I cannot recommend Long Branch or Dragonfly Events and Design enough!! Check this place out and you will so happy you did!Sent on 07/18/2018
